Winscombe recorded their fourth victory on the trot to cement their place at the top of the Tribute Somerset Premier League.

Wiveliscombe 16 pts

Winscombe 23 pts

Winscombe travelled to Wiveliscombe looking to cement their place at the top of the Tribute Somerset Premier League.

Playing down the slope in the first-half, Winscombe started brightly and although they went behind to an early penalty, they were soon on the scoreboard themselves courtesy of a try by captain Lewis Podpadec, who took the ball over the line at the back of a well worked driving maul.

Wiveliscombe were vulnerable to the rolling maul and when they illegally tried to stop another 10 minutes later, the referee was in no doubt about awarding a penalty try. Two further penalty kicks by Sam Dearsly saw Winscombe move further ahead as half-time approached.

With tries either side of the break, Wiveliscombe turned the game on its head and with the advantage of the slope in the second half, the home team looked set to cause an upset.
